Huckleberries Online

Local Question of the Day -- 9/8/05

Issue: Victim angry over rapist's plea bargain: Tuggle's former sister-in-law, assaulted at 13, wanted death penalty/Taryn Brodwater, Spokesman-Review. Related: Tuggle admits to rape, kidnapping of daughter/Taryn Brodwater, Spokesman-Review.

DFO: So, when does perv Tuggle get out of prison to reoffend again, with time off for good behavior and all. The Shoshone County Prosecutor's Office blew it by not pursuing attempted murder charges against this creep. And the death penalty. After all, the prosecutor's office had Tuggle dead to rights because it had a live victim to put on the stand.

Question: Is plea-bargaining the way to go when you have a chance to put a violent sex offender away for good. Or mebbe execute him?
